When I tether my phone, I can't access Google or Gmail (other sites, too).
cmd: ping http://www.google.com; Ping request could not find host...
List of problem sites/applications:
- https://www.google.com; http://www.google.co.jp;
- https://search.yahoo.com, same issue.
- Also, https://play.google.com.
- Further, https://github.com.
- Dang! https://www.freelancer.com.
- Parts of http://www.titanpad.com (i.e., login); makes me curious as to whether or not it's a language-blocking issue.
- ET Naver Line (a.k.a. LINE) (jp.naver.android.npush)
I experience this on various sites and apps; however the above are sites tested as working over emobile (separate modem)--the URLs should be correct. I would change the question title, but I have a support request in with the developers to contact me via this site for a resolution.

Why am I experiencing these issues (not being able to connect to the above-mentioned websites), and how can these issues be resolved? Can you help me test what I think is causing the issues?
- Perhaps the reason I cannot access these sites is because they are in use by the phone? If that is the case, I am not sure how to test it. So far, when I "force-stop" and "disable" an app like LINE, I still cannot connect. So, I thought: it's possible that the phone is reserving the app's networking info, somehow. So, I went so far as to uninstall Line from my phone and reset the phone and PC. Still unable to use Line on the PC. Furthermore; Skype works simultaneously on PC and Phone.
- Perhaps it's a PC or OS issue? I still have yet to tether my phones to a different PC or OS.
- Perhaps it's a DNS issue? I still have yet to test this, but I believe I get a similar error with OpenDNS when trying to access localhost.
- "Activate EasyTether or use it with UDP and secure sites BLOCKED? This message appears at the top of Easy Tether's settings screen. I'm very curious to know whether or not this is the cause. It seems highly likely.
